Famous quotes containing the words service and/or religious:

    Finally, your lengthy service ended,
    Lay your weariness beneath my laurel tree.
    Horace [Quintus Horatius Flaccus] (65–8)

    In the dominant Western religious system, the love of God is essentially the same as the belief in God, in God’s existence, God’s justice, God’s love. The love of God is essentially a thought experience. In the Eastern religions and in mysticism, the love of God is an intense feeling experience of oneness, inseparably linked with the expression of this love in every act of living.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
